The rest of the day felt a little rough, but that workout at least set the tone for a positive day. I always feel more patient with my students when I've already gotten a good sweat session done.
But the highlight of the day? This seriously delicious burger, courtesy of my husband.
To create these masterpieces, Terry topped the grass-fed beef with a fried egg, pepper jack cheese, tomato, avocado, and hot sauce (though I omitted the hot sauce). We used toasted whole wheat English muffins for the bun--so good!
And on the side: diced pears and blackberries. Our little "breakfast" was phenomenal!
I also promised you another recipe that Terry created yesterday. You remember that he decided on this week's dinner menu; well, so far, his two dinners have been AMAZING! Last night he made California Caprese salad, and it rocked!
California Caprese Salad
- 2 tomatoes, preferably heirloom
- 1 avocado (or more, if you want)
- 3-4 ounces mozzarella, sliced
- Olive oil
- Balsamic vinegar (a particularly sweet version is best!)
- Salt and pepper, optional (we forgot and it still tasted great!)
Slice the tomatoes and avocado(s). Layer a tomato slice, a mozzarella slice, and then the avocado. Repeat until all slices are used. Drizzle the olive oil and vinegar over everything; then sprinkle with salt and pepper.
So simple. So fresh. So delicious. My husband is amazing.
I also made these cookies in response to a vicious brownie craving.
I followed the recipe exactly and added an extra sprinkle of salt on top of the cookies at the end. Because I'm a little bit of a cookie genius. (But really only in terms of choosing recipes, because if I ever tried to make up a recipe from thin air I would likely end up with something that resembles goop.)
And now a little school work and Downton Abbey before bed!
What was your most recent craving? Did you go for it?
